On Wednesday April 25th, Eucalyptus will be hosting our first EucaDay. It’s a friendly little gathering of customers, partners, and community, and it’s free to attend. If you’re in the New York City area, you can register right now.
Of course, not everyone will be able to make it to New York City for this event. That’s ok, too — you can still attend and participate. For the sessions led by Marten Mickos (head honcho), Tim Cramer (lovable despot of engineering) and myself (community guy), we will be transcribing them live and in their entirety to IRC: #eucalyptus-meeting on freenode. In the morning session, Marten will go from 8am to 8:30am, and Tim will go from 8:30am to 9:30am. In the afternoon session, I will go from 3pm to 4:30pm, and then Marten will wrap up at 4:30pm. (All times in the Eastern US timezone.)
The community session will be particularly interesting, mostly because I’ll only be speaking for a small part of it. :) We will be running a Eucalyptus mini-film-festival, where members of our community will link to short videos, and then take questions and answers on IRC afterwards. See what actual community members are doing, right now, to make Eucalyptus more useful.
The great thing about IRC is that you can fire up your client and lurk all day, if you like. Just read back for the interesting bits. :) Logs will be available as well, as with all Eucalyptus meetings on IRC.
So. Join us on freenode, #eucalyptus-meeting, for the day on Wednesday. Lurk or jump in. Not being in NYC doesn’t mean you can’t join the fun.
